(Editor's note: The following is a report Patch received from Lakewood Police spokesman Chris Lawler, who also provided stills from the security camera)
At 0923 hours, we got a call for an armed robbery at the US Bank 9310 Bridgeport Way SW. Reports came in that three males wearing masks had come into the bank and jumped over the counters. After robbing the bank and taking cash, witnesses told us they fled to a car parked behind the old QFC building. It was described as a light blue Buick. Another witness called in a few minutes later to say that the Buick was abandoned by the suspects in the 6400 block of Fairlawn and they were seen speeding away in a white SUV driven by a white female. When officers got to that location, they found the blue Buick abandoned with the doors open. It turns out the Buick was a reported stolen vehicle. No one in the bank was hurt and no shots were fired.
